I get the impression that both of the other Forums need me and 'The Trio' to keep their otherwise silent Boards alive.
Scottg is pestering away wanting me to explain 'Sheerness' - "or else". Oh, I forgot, he already played that card and I did not respond - so he "told all" about GBOK and Sheerness and a company named Faraday, except that he only told you about a name, but he could not put that name in context or explain what it means.
Because Scottg got his information via Paul Rusling who didn't understand either, and Paul Rusling got his information from the former 'Caroline Newsletter' which was published with copyright information by 'The Trio'. So Paul stole the information by claiming it for himself but he did not understand what he stole and so Scottg understands even less.
So come on Scottg, as soon as my latest information arrives and I have had time to assess it, I will be telling the people you are trying to impress, all about Arthur Carrington.
If you want to try to impress everyone, you had better do it soon because that international delivery cannot be that much longer in arrival.
Scottg, it's time for you to put up, or shut up, and your putting up had better be able to explain why Atlanta and Caroline were one project and not two ...
Tick, tock, tick, tock ....
No wonder Scottg is waiting for me to tell him about GBOK and why he thinks that Atlanta and Caroline were two projects!
Have you seen Mike Leonard's 'Offshore Radio Museum'?
I have both of Mike Leonard's offshore radio books, and the first one - the massive doorstop encyclopedia is very good, as far as it goes. It was published way back in 1996, and it even has an illustration from a Chinese newspaper published in the USA that features an ad for 'Radio Tiananmen' (spelt differently in the Chinese ad), that was the work of Genie Baskir during the time of her dealings with Alan Weiner and the Federal Communications Commission in Washington, DC.
So I am surprised at how much false information is on Mike's 'Offshore Radio Museum' about Atlanta and Caroline. For instance, he claims that:
.... which is peculiar since Project Atlanta Limited was registered officially on August 1, 1963. So scrub 1961 as a start date for the beginnings of Project Atlanta. If Mike confused himself and meant to write CBC (Plays) Ltd., well that date does not fit either, and it seems that neither Crawford nor Dorothy (Kitty) Black formed that company for that purpose, and when it finally did come to life, it was in 1962, but there is reason to believe that originally it was created back in 1960 to supply British scripts to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation from a London based company. Then it went dormant.
Now look at what else Mike Leonard claims about the start of Radio Atlanta ....
The Mi Amigo was stripped of all broadcasting equipment - we know who did it and even where the equipment was transported to. We also know that the transmitters were sent back to Continental Electronics for refurbishing. We know when they were reinstalled on the ship; we know who did it and we know where the ship went. It was not back to Europe! By the way, the silly story about turning the vessel into a "fishing cruiser" is laughable. (Even Rusling got some of that right - because he stole it from the 'Caroline Newsletter'!)
So if Scottg is getting his information from Mike Leonard, well it is no wonder that Scottg is so confused.
By the way, for a long time, until it was pointed out to him by a member of 'The Trio', Mike thought that the electrical switch gear photograph he had on display, was that of the CE transmitter on board Radio Caroline North (mv Caroline; ex-Iseult; ex-Fredericia.) Mike said he got his misinformation from Hans Knot, and then the Isle of Man museum which published its own book with the same misinformation, also blamed Hans Knot as the source.
By the way, it was 'Pope Knot' who compared Rusling's 'Bible' to the 'Holy Bible'!
Go figure that chain of misinformation from the all-knowing and all-seeing Hans Knot: he is obviously as blind as a bat and lacking radar to compensate.
No one it seems has spent so much time and money as 'The Trio' to see if ANY of the original claims about Atlanta and Caroline are true!
'The Trio' have discovered that 99% of them are absolute rubbish, and the Muck-Spreader-in-Chief of that rubbish was Ronan O'Rahilly! To this day, people like Paul Rusling and Scottg find it hard to swallow the fact that O'Rahilly was a liar; a con man and either an idiot with a personal vendetta against Prime Minister Harold Wilson, or worse still, an undercover agent for IRA interests!
So if you want the real story about Atlanta and Caroline, stay right here because it will be coming on these pages.
